    Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P Active 18" Subwoofer:

    These are great little subs for being only 69 lbs. Yes they will clip or thermal shutdown if you push them past 12 o clock. However, they produce a great amount of bass up to that point. Seems like the only bad reviews these get is because people just expect too much bass from a small enclosure. They want to fill up a football field with only 2 of these lol. Yes, you can find louder subs but they will weigh more and cost more. At this price if you need more bass just add more of these.

    Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P Active 18" Subwoofer:

    I own a pair of EV ELX115P & a pair of EV ELX118P. I must say that the speakers sound great crisp and loud. I personally have not experienced the thermal shut down issue that they supposedly have. we have done many events with them in different locations and i am very satisfied with the sound. The only issue i have encountered is that they might clip at a certain point and thats the only cons i have. just watch out for constant clip and you should be out of trouble.

    Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P Active 18" Subwoofer:

    At first I really liked these subs, they had great sound and were very light. After less than 10 months of using it 1-2 times a month both subs have blown. We were always very careful with them, never clipped and watched the limits. When we pulled the subs apart we were disappointed to see how poorly made the actual drivers are. We have since upgraded them to Eminence drivers and they sound better than ever.

    Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P Active 18" Subwoofer:

    For their weight and size, you are not going to find a better Sub for the money. I have a sound company and when I used these sub (8) I was very Impressed. For me that's saying a lot. When I read the specs I was very skeptical at first but after running them for several months now, I think the spec. are underated. My lumpers where impressed with the weight. In Fact there asked me to get 16 more and replace the other subs I have. LOL. If you are looking for a good set of Subs give these some serious thought. Heck their EV. a great speaker company. My only complaints are the grill covers. Not heavey duty enought, But There are easy fixes for that. So all in all they are EV. Enough Said.

    Terrible

    By GOOSE

    from Belmont, NC

    Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P Active 18" Subwoofer:

    We purchased a whole Ev Live X system and I can not recommend these products at all. While the sound quality was good they would constantly shut down. It is a design flaw that causes the amp to overheat, outside as well as inside. Heat sink is no where large enough and no built in fans, so you can't even get through a couple of songs without them going into safe mode (No sound). They costs us jobs and a bunch of money lost.

    .Best Sub For your money.

    Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P Active 18" Subwoofer:

    I have had My EV's for almost a year now. I have put them to the test Beleave me. I am very hard on Equipment. I would have bet that they would have given up the ghost by now. But to my surprise they are still kicking butt and taking names. I have used both the JBL PRX618s XLF and the QSC KW118 sub , and was impressed with there performance the latter more so. But I must say when it come down to these factors, Sound Quality, Reliability,Cost, Durability and Potability. In That order, I would have to say you can't beat the EV's I would not hesitate for one second to get another set or two of these EV's if I ever need to replace these that I have now.
    Bare bones in the features. But it makes up for it in sound quality. It May only be only 800 watts of power but it gives the 1000 watt class subs a lot of competition on the volume and soumd quality side.
    The sound is great. There is no other sub in it's price range that can touch it. It gives QSC and JBL a good run for the money. I did find that the grill cover is not a tought as I would like it to be. That's why I gave it a 9 instead of a 10. You will just have to be a little more careful when you trow them in the back of the Van.
    I bought 4 because the price was great and I wanted to make sure I had a back up just in case. I still have two in the boxes they came in, unopened. Havent needed them as of yet. Over 100 shows so far at loud volumes.

    Great sound, price and lightweight

    By Ryan Rowell

    from Oklahoma

    Comments about Electro-Voice ELX118P Active 18" Subwoofer:

    This is one great sub. It is a perfect match for the EV ELX115P powered 15" speakers. It is fairly lightweight, yet powerful enough to shake the walls. This sub is a perfect choice if you want to FEEL your music.
    This sub is all business. There are not many bells and whistles, but who needs them on a sub? This sub is very powerful and produces very tight and punchy bass.
    Very durable construction. I would give the quality a 10 out of 10 if the enclosure and grill were a little more heavy duty. Just be careful when transporting the sub and it will look great for the many gigs to come.
    For the quality and performance this sub is an amazing value. Less expensive than some of the competing brands, but very comparable in sound quality.
